The Refresher Program is designed to update and review the knowledge and skill level of an inactive diver. We encourage the use of this program for instructors, assistant instructors, and resorts or dive facilities that have questions regarding the diving history of an individual. This program can also be used as a catalyst for continuing education programs.
